The Piper Art Gallery, London

Project - The Piper Art Gallery

Location - London, United Kingdom

The brief called for a calm, bright and joyous space with elements of Narnia-style discovery and Alice in Wonderland-like scale changes in a relatively restricted area, which resulted in the designer’s favourite feature: a hidden, two-story office space behind a secret wall and lit through walk-on glazed roof lights from the deck above.

The extensive refit for this new London art gallery required substantial rebuilding. An additional staircase and an external roof terrace were just two of the demands: all for completion within a tight, 4-month timescale, which required careful planning. 

The brief called for a calm, bright and joyous space with elements of Narnia-style discovery and Alice in Wonderland-like scale changes in a relatively restricted area, which resulted in the designer’s favourite feature: a hidden, two-story office space behind a secret wall and lit through walk-on glazed roof lights from the deck above.

Solid, European Oak, tumbled parquet blocks were chosen to create a non-linear space with an air of authenticity, whilst a distressed, matt UV oiled, European Oak character grade engineered board was chosen for the basement and staircases to tie in with the blocks whilst provide a hard-wearing floor which required less maintenance. 

“Havwoods were excellent again. Good prices, good customer service, good technical support and speedy sample delivery for client choice. Very accommodating on site with requirements for extra material, etc.”
